Through a massive, international collaborative effort, the entire genome of bread wheat has now been mapped. This makes it possible to in the future develop wheat strains that lack certain proteins, including the gluten proteins that are harmful for celiac disease patients.
PhD student Ida Lindeman has performed part of her PhD work in Cambridge, Sarah Teichmann's laboratory, as part of a researcher exchange program to develop world leading research at UiO. Her work has now been published in Nature Methods.
Since January 2018, Det Glutenfrie Verksted by Monica Hellmann, Nordic Refreshment Company AS, has donated 1 NOK per bag of gluten free baking mix to research on coeliac disease. The donation is supporting research under the management by Prof Ludvig M. Sollid and Knut E.A. Lundin who are very grateful for this generous gift.
Professor Cisca Wijmenga is awarded the distinguished UEG Research Prize 2018 for her outstanding work “A celiac mucosal barrier-on-chip model to investigate its role in initiation of celiac disease”.
Researchers from J CoDiRC won prizes for best original publications from Oslo University Hospital published in the second half of 2017
The patients weren't crazy—Knut Lundin was sure of that. But their ailment was a mystery. They were convinced gluten was making them sick. Yet they didn't have celiac disease, an autoimmune reaction to that often-villainized tangle of proteins in wheat, barley, and rye. And they tested negative for a wheat allergy. They occupied a medical no man's land. (Servick, Science News, 2018)
Gastroenterologist and J CoDiRC group leader Knut Lundin is the keynote speaker at the National Coeliac Conference 2018, UK. The conference is arranged in Malta by Coeliac UK and Narrative Structures to increase awareness of coeliac disease.
Each year the Norwegian Society of Immunology organizes the public event: "Immunologiens dag". This year the topic was autoimmune disease, and Ludvig Sollid and Knut Lundin were invited to speak about their research on coeliac disease
Diagnostikk av cøliaki – er tiden inne for å endre metode?
PhD student and dietary clinician Gry Skodje and Postdoc Lene Støkken Høydahl will both be giving talks at Glutenfri matmesse 2018, a public arrangement by Norsk Cøliakiforening i Oslo og Akershus April 14th.
